Families that bicycle together… Choose the Darn Tough Ride!

This year, the family ride is rerouted and will stay in town. Traffic on a busy weekend, and safety of all riders are always a main concern, so we have decided that cyclists in the family ride will stay closer to home base (The Commodores Inn).
They will also take advantage of plenty of fresh pavement in Nebraska Valley, on Barrows Road, the Mountain Road, and even some parts of the Recreation Path.


The Rugged Adventures Camp is also available for children ages 5-12 who prefer to play while their parents ride!
